Decreased Strength

By: Dr. James D. Fontaine

Decreased muscle mass (sarcopenia) and strength is common as we age, but muscles are important for maintaining physical appearance and decreasing illness and injury. Decreased muscle mass and strength leads to increased falls, increased body fat, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and joint pain. This situation may be related to hormone imbalances, poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Our Healthy Aging program will help you regain proper muscle mass by optimizing your hormones, especially testosterone and thyroid, in conjunction with proper nutrition, supplements and exercise.
